Master's Professional Reports Abstract

From Ending to Mending: Alternatives to Affirmative Action in a Changing Political and Economic Landscape

Affirmative action has been a controversial policy since its creation. In 1996, the debate continues with increasing hostility towards affirmative action programs and with many more efforts to change the manner in which discrimination is eradicated from the workplace. In the midst of this controversy over the current structure of affirmative action programs, efforts have turned to developing alternatives. These alternatives range from abolishing the current system to developing complementary programs and redefining the current regulations. It is the intent of this report to examine these alternatives, their advantatges and disadvantages, and their feasibility of implementation.
